The Root Cause is a documentary film about the impact humans have had upon the earth and its creatures. In the film scholars present their research about changes that are already taking place on earth and those we can expect in the future.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Dec 20th, 2016 9:58 AM
The scholars conclude that human activity on the planet is a geological force, changing the climate and the oceans, reshaping the landscape, causing pollution, and driving extinctions of other species. As a result, human civilization as we know it is facing its own demise. Can humans change the way we interact with the environment and change our future to avert disaster, or are we bound by our innate nature to continue as a destructive geological force?
Please join us for this thought provoking film and meet the filmmakers Julia Buss and David Millett. We are also fortunate to have notable climate experts from the film with us. UC Berkeley Geography Department Chair Nathan Sayre and Stanford Anthropocene expert Michael Osborne will join the filmmakers for a panel discussion that seeks solutions and audience participation.
Come at 6:30 for meet and greet, bring healthy snacks to share if you can.
The film begins at 7:00 and will be followed by the panel discussion.
